I'm not understanding the story. She got out of the car, apparently walked away from the car, then walked back towards the car and fell at which point the husband backed over her as he was leaving.
Why did she get out of the car if he was leaving?
Why did she walk away from the car towards the street?
Why did she walk back towards the car?
The only scenario that makes any sense is the went someplace together, he had another errand to run and she didn't want to go, he dropped her off in the driveway and left again, not noticing that she had fallen behind the vehicle. If that's the case, why did she walk behind the vehicle towards the street - did she get the mail maybe? If that's the case why the hell wasn't he aware of her doing that?
I don't get it.

It would be like hitting a speed bump. Once the tires hit the body he would have had to hit the gas to run her over and it would have been obvious that he was running over something large. Hard to put that in the category of accident.

Interesting to see what the investigation uncovers. Clearly the police have not ruled out foul play.

I see it all the time, people flooring it when backing out of a parking space or driveway.

Yes, I figured he was dropping her off and then going somewhere else. And that she was going to get the mail, pick up the newspaper, bring up the trash cans, etc... Maybe she communicated this to her husband, maybe not.

This is by far the most logical response. Accidents happen in split seconds. He just pulled into the driveway so he knew nothing was around or behind the car as of a few seconds before. She very easily could have walked towards the house, he looked away from her for a split second and very likely didn't see her return or fall near the car. Not everyone performs a walk around safety check every time before reversing...

I never walk behind a car if I can help it. I mean, if I get out of a car in the driveway, or someone drops me off out front, I walk around the front of the car even if it is farther to walk. To me it just seems sensible and also a courtesy to the driver.

A similar incident occurred here, just last month. An adorable 4 year old boy died from his injuries when he was struck by a car at his home. The accident occurred in the driveway, and the driver was his mother. I can't even imagine her grief. It was a very rough day in that community, and folks still have not completely recovered.
